Broadway bricks2021

I found 20 old bricks salvaged from the 2015 Broadway St repaving, and sliced them open out of curiosity and to preserve them in art. They show the inner uniqueness of things which look similar on the outside, and the persistence of inner beauty despite extensive external wear. This mosaic arrangement invites me to walk along a dimension perpendicular to the original street arrangement, and to imagine all the very different lives and minds of people who have shared space without any real contact in this community. Humble, hard worked, unnoticed, but still the solid Midwestern grid which I hope will keep our communities intact in these times
